BIOGRAPHY

Earning a scarred forehead and gravelly voice from battles on the deathmatch scene, Tomoaki Honma had an unconventional route to NJPW, but his bright personality and never give up attitude has made him a favourite of the New Japan roster for years. 

A former back to back World Tag league winner and IWGP Tag Team Champion, Honma owes much of his success to an undying loyalty to friend Togi Makabe. Honma stuck with Makabe even in the wake of the collapse of his GBH stable, andhis unwavering commitment and loyalty helped Honma perservere through a career threatening neck injury in 2017. 

Still fighting hard to bring a smile to the audience, Honma’s kokeshi headbutt is the highlight of his fans’ day, and could yet bring him glory in an NJPW ring once more.
